The Truth about Ubuntu!

Filed under
Ubuntu

My grumbles of Ubuntu Dapper Flight 6, after being used on a day to day basis on a T41 in a University Environment:

Hardware:

Wireless:

No problems today. I said today, because at this time, NetworkManager is a wonderful application. This would not have been my response months ago as I was trying to compile WPA support, change my sources list, and test LEAP authentication.

Sound:

I still don't get it. Why can linux only play one sound at a time?

Software:

Firefox:

Beyond some stepping stones to get flash installed, as it does not work from the on line installer, only the apt-get method, everything has been running flawlessly.

Full Review.

Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
